The Fresh Food Collective was formed to solve two problems we face in America: food waste and hunger.
The Collective is led by Comfort Food Community. It includes local farms, businesses, non-profits, churches, libraries and individual citizens. We believe that in a country of such abundance, everyone should have access to Real. Fresh. Food.
You're Not Alone
Fresh produce is healthier, but more expensive, than non-perishable goods, which means many people experiencing food insecurity do not have access to it. It is the Fresh Food Collective’s mission to contribute to the health of our community through the power of good food.
Struggle to Put
Food on the Table
Fresh Food Collective's sources are local farmers ready and willing to help the community in which they live. Fresh fruits and vegetables are grown locally and go from the farm to table.
Our Pick-Up Sites are senior centers, community centers, food pantries and libraries. Deliveries are made weekly to sites beginning in mid-July and ending in November.
Our Collective is striving towards our next goal: making these fresh fruits and vegetables available to schools. We are hoping in the next couple of years that this becomes a reality.
Farm 2 Library Program
The Fresh Food Collective has teamed up with the Southern Adirondack Library Systems to provide fresh produce through select local libraries. All libraries will have deliveries of fresh fruit and vegetables each Tuesday and Friday from mid-July to mid-November.
